Event Description

Jonathan Safran Foer, a 1999 graduate of Princeton, is the author of the novels Everything Is Illuminated (2002) and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (2005). In 2009, he published a work of nonfiction titled Eating Animals. He is working on a version of the Haggadah, which will be released in March 2012.

His talk, a conversation with novelist and creative writing professor Joyce Carol Oates, will focus on the profession of writing, as well as the role of autobiographical elements and issues of Jewish identity that appear in Foer's work.
